September 28th kicked off yet another mayoral debate, with this one focusing on non-profit organizations. Five of the ten men running for the mayoral position faced off on many topics including gender discrimination and the Calgary opioid crisis. Both David Lapp and Larry Heather expressed a lack of support for equal gender representation in the workplace. Allegations against Mayor Naheed Nenshi were thrown around by candidate Dr. Emile Gabriel, as well as candidate David Lapp. Nenshi countered these allegations, claiming the facts weren’t straight. The election is fast approaching with roughly three weeks left for candidates to exhibit their platforms to the public. Nenshi, Lapp and members of the audience expressed surprise that candidate Bill Smith was a no-show.
